Bo Bichette is going to have to pass concussion testing before he plays again. The Blue Jays will be evaluating him tomorrow but odds are he’ll be sitting for a few days..
There is no reason not to be cautious with 10 games left of the season. It does bug me that they didn’t take him out right after he got hit. I understand that it is hard to tell that someone has a concussion right away at times, but possible concussions are something I’d rather err on the side of caution over. I’d be all for a rule saying any player hit in the head with a pitch is to be immediately taken out of the game.
Don't expect that Bichette will play any of the three games at Yankee Stadium. The right move is to be slow and cautious with Bichette here.— Arash Madani (@ArashMadani) September 20, 2019
He will need to pass tests, and then go through a series of progressions where he's asymptomatic. Likely doesn't happen in 72 hours. https://t.co/kCwfGpfcyL
